Portraiture & Expressionism workshops by Amina Art Ansari

Traditional and contemporary techniques are incorporated into projects. Each student complete the course with a wide range of rendering techniques and gain a historical awareness of artists who have worked in this manner. Honing individual style is encouraged as well as creating self-portraits.

Expressionism is an artistic style in which the artist seeks to depict not objective reality but rather the subjective emotions and responses that object and events arouse with the person. Students accomplish this aim through distortion, exaggeration, primitivism, and fantasy and through the vivid, jarring, violent, or dynamic application of formal elements. The Artist demonstrates on how we tune from negative to positive emotion as Art Therapy and by educating Psychology of Colours.
